    Examples could be A2A, A2G missiles, cruise missiles, electronic warfare systems, UAVs (HALE/MALE) etc.

    Now Turkey develops 100% indigenous Helicopters T-625 and ATAK-II including turboshaft gas turbine engine


    btw Egypt locally produced Helicopter under license like Turkey produced F-16 Fighter Jet and Sikorsky Blackhawk Helicopter

    so Egypt has no technology to develop its own Helicopters ( design , software , mission computer , electronic and avionic systems , Millimeter wave fire control Radar , Electronic Warfare Counter Measure System , DIRCM Infrared Counter Measure System , Target Detection System , Helicopter Obstacle Detection System , HELMET Integrated Display System , landing gears , pal and rotor systems , transmission , engine )

    Egypt needs technology transfer

    Turkey was ready to give all those technologies to Egypt but there was a military coup in Egypt

    Your population is very different and education is much easier to get. If more aerospace engineering degrees and more engineers were dedicated I'm sure Egypt could achieve similar tech to Turkey. Than again, even Brazil uses US tech in their planes so it takes tech transfer I agree. Egypt does need a tech transfer but I'm sure Ukraine or some other country besides Turkey could be contracted for TOT because I'm sure Turkey will have some restrictions in TOT.
    Did you actually like Morsi? Egypt has had a military leader for the past 660 years and in my opinion is better off with one.

    Abrams,K-8 etc are assembled from Kits in Egypt not manufactured.

    There is a difference between assembling and manufacturing.

    Some parts are manufactured in Egypt like rudders, flaps, etc for K-8 but unsure about Abrams.

    I honestly think Egypt is more job focused than self-sufficiency focused.

    @MMM-E

    Forgot to mention, a foreign helicopter designer could be contracted to make a helicopter for a Egyptian company. UAE did that with their B-250 Bader which has the same designer as the Tucano.

    Yes Egypt can do this but Egypt needs hundreds of billions of dollars and minimum 40 years


    Turkey develops military industry not only for itself but also for 1,7 billion of Islamic world

    Unfortunately good relations are broken between two muslim countries Egypt and Turkey

    and Egypt dependent on Christian countries and in a real war Egypt will be so regret , but it will so late like in 1967

    Once Erdogan leaves I hope that improved relations can be had between Turkey and Arab and Muslim countries. A lot of work needs to be done for cooperation between the states that will improve the self-sufficiency from the West a lot of Muslim countries have. Honestly I don't see a state where Erdogan and Arab nations can cooperate.

    Problem is not Erdogan
    there never was good relations between Egypt and Turkey
    because of the UK , the US control Egypt via puppet leaders for decades and the UK , the US never will allow Egypt and Turkey to be allies each others

    Jordan and Turkey have relatively good relations even with the US and UK influence in Jordan. Go to Jordanian armed forces thread and respond if you can about the defense industry and Turkish cooperation.

    Jordan is useless country , but Egypt is giant in the region ( 100 million population ) and if Egypt - Turkey would be allies then Nobody can stop Islamic Power in the region ... so the US - the UK never will allow Egypt and Turkey to be allies

    btw Jordan , S.Arabia, the Uae even can not go to toilet without American-British permission

    and thanks to Erdogan that he makes Turkey as sovereign country
